F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

m 235 oil

dealer says they are using 0w-30 in the m 235's. somewhere i read that if you are located in a warmer climate (i am in southwest florida) 5w-40 would be a suitable replacement. dealers response it that they go by bmw's "law". any comments appreciated

My Floriduh dealership still sells 5W-30 BMW LL-01 oil. The LL-01 has a slightly higher minimum high temperature high shear rating than the LL-01FE (0W-30), though.

Frau Putzer's V6 Honda Accord was running new after 147k miles on 5W-20. So, I'm not worried about her new X3 taking BMW LL-14FE+ 0W-20.
